Meat-loving calf eats chickens

Strange Animal Behavior: India

March 08, 2007
When 48 chickens went missing in a month from a remote West Bengal village, everyone blamed the neighborhood dogs. But the owner eventually solved the puzzle when he caught his cow - a sacred animal for the Hindu family - gobbling up several of them at night. "We were shocked to see our calf eating chickens alive. Instead of the dogs, we watched in horror as the calf, whom we had fondly named Lal, sneak to the coop and grab the little ones with the precision of a jungle cat." Local television pictures showed the cow grabbing and eating a chicken in seconds and a vet confirmed the case. "We think lack of vital minerals in the body is causing this behaviour. We have taken a look and have asked doctors to look into the case immediately. This strange behaviour is possible in some exceptional cases."
